These days there's a lot of talk about Seattle's police force using drones and surveillence cameras and all kinds of high-tech stuff. So let's take a look back at a simpler time when the Model-T car was considered state-of-the-art. Pictured here is Seattle's No. 5 Precinct in 1912. Don't know about you but we were expecting more mustaches. The specific address of this station remains unknown but you might be able to figure out what neighborhood this precinct was located in. Look closely. So, what Seattleneighborhood was this police station in?
